Drinking my first bottle of my first ever AG brew, the PET bottle in fact, this is the GW recipe for Old Hooky. Bottled 23rd June, not sure as it is particularly close to the original, I do have some in the house to compare but it is a very nice drink. This was made with SO4 and I have a comparison brew made the same except with WLP002, so we shall see if I can tell the difference tomorrow night when I will have all three :)
Humle presumably means “hop” and to be honest it doesn’t taste any more bitter or crisp than the original, it’s actually closer to an unfiltered german Helles than a Pilsner which it’s supposed to be. It is unfiltered and that does seem to give it a bit more character. Honestly though the Carlsberg in Denmark is pretty tasty and absolutely streets ahead of the brewed under license UK version (and I don’t think that is that bad!)
Really interested to try this Polly kveik beer as I happen to have a hoppy kveik in the fv at the mo.
Lovely ripe fruit juicy aroma and flavour up front with a slightly tart/sharp finish.
Very morish. Yum
Not as good as the Keep left a resin like taste, but still really goof. I’m starting to fear I am going to end up as one of those people who ends up refreshing the Verdant page, so I can order their new release as soon as it comes out.
